    Another good test for the Habs. I think this will be a close one. Probably a 1-goal game. Looking forward to it

    We’ve had some pretty epic playoff battles with the flames and 2 of my favorite players played for them. Otto and Fluery. Good ole days lol!

    Should be a good game. Flames are fun team to watch. Flames should be favourites here but the Habs play with so much speed and effort it's tough to really go against them at home. I'm gonna go with Flames 3-2 hope DLO sits until he doesn't have his bird cage. He's at his best when he's physical and couldn't really play that way against the Sens.

    I hate the Flames cause I started to watch Hockey and cheer for the Habs when we lost to them in 89. I remember that series very well!

    For what it's worth, I watched the Rangers and Flames last night and tbh the Rags gave the Flames as much as they could handle but Rittich held the fort, he was amazing for them. The Flames level of talent won them the game against the workmanlike Rangers, the skill level advantage if you will. If this Flames team can put it all together I can honestly see them as big threats in the west, I kind of see them as an eastern style team in the western conference. The habs will have a very tough time against them. 4-2 Flames.

    So do I until they slay us every year. I've seen some real stinkers live against the flames.

    We get the benefit of playing a team who had to play and travel last night, seems like we luck out like that a lot,

    However, I feel this will be our beginning of a slow steady decline back to where we belong,

    5-1 Flames

    This is the Claude Julien of last year.... Alzner instead of Mete again today.

    Hudon and Scherbak as extra again for a guy like Deslauriers F$$$ me!

    If Mete is ready to go 100%, dressing Alzner over him is just gross.

    Wouldn't mind Mete going to Laval and call Kulak in Montreal. Kulak is doing everything he needs in order to be called up.

    Mete was struggling anyway, he needs to work some things at a slower pace, especially his offense.

    And before the crazies chime in, and begins calling me names for saying that Mete will only learn in the NHL, he's only 20, was there last season because of our piss-poor defense, and this season he doesn't bring anything so far besides his skating.

    It's not like it will ruin him or something...

    I'm not a fan of Julien's decision making when it comes to lineup changes.

    He tampers with a winning lineup that was highly successful by inserting slower players like Deslauriers, Shaw, Alzner - lose.

    Doesn't make any changes going into the next game...
